Reminder: The special convention hotel rate ends April 29th! Make your reservations soon!! The convention website says they still need more reservations to avoid paying a penalty! If you plan to go, get it done!!
The Region's investment fund provides additional funds if needed, from the interest generated. Funds from this earned interest can be obtained by a vote from the Board, when required. The last significant expenditure made may have been the Division's trailer, (which failing memories present were only able to recall!)
Dick noted that the latest changes to the Region's Constitution still need to be approved by
the Region's members.
Deadlines for RMR candidates for this year's elections are due to the Callboard (Dick) by Friday. Don is running for another term as Treasurer and Gary submitted his bio for candidacy for a Director at large bid. Bill is another possible Director candidate and is currently serving as 2008 Election Chairman.

Show & Tell: Flat cars & Loads
Clinic: Turnout Building - Bill
Gary brought his FASTTRACKS template for building HO Dual Gauge, Standard Gauge, and Narrow Gauge turnouts, and displayed the Frog and Point rail tool used to quickly manufacture No. 6 switches. The jig makes it possible to make left and right turnouts in any combination of standard, narrow and dual gauge turnout with the narrow gauge on the left side of the turnouts. Gary's club member Tom also has the opposite matching turnout jig with narrow gauge on the right enabling them to make any combination of No. 6 HO turnouts.
